This morning I sat down at my desk to do a little bit of work. I looked at blogs from across the world from the students that I work with. I sent a quick email to my boss across the province. Yesterday, I called my parents, talked to my son, received a picture from my daughter and grandson and of course, checked out facebook and instagram.

Plans have been flying around here at this house. First, my son had a buddy pass with WestJet and so we made plans to fly to Ontario and surprise the family. It was going to be fun but then with poor Bentley's prognosis from the vet, we cancelled the flight.
Ron had been talking to his mom about the possibility of coming to visit and all of a sudden it was decided that she would come for Christmas. It will be so great having family here for the holidays. So we sat down at the computer and booked for Ron to go to Ontario to help his mom get here. He will take a few extra days to visit these sweet little mugs.
She will need to bring some warm sweaters and boots. She is just what the doctor ordered.

Ron and I sat in church yesterday. He turned to me and said "Ten years ago today was my last day of pastoring."
We had to keep the whole process a secret until Ron was accepted because we didn't really know where it would end up. As the time was getting closer Ron tried to give little hints on the church sign.
Real Christians Must Pray.....RCMP
God Remains Constant....GRC
He's a tricky guy! When Ron whispered that to me in church, we didn't really have time to think about it because right at that moment the Pastor asked Ron to serve communion. God is faithful to continue to let us minister in small ways. We are not full time pastors but our hearts are still for His people and we are eager to serve in whatever way we can.
So in 10 years....Ron has been posted to 5 different postings, he has been promoted from Constable to Corporal. We have found a church family in each place ...in a Pentecostal church in Swift Current, an Alliance church in Flin Flon, an Evangelical Free in Three Hills and now back to Pentecostal here in Pincher Creek.
10 years! It came and went so fast. In the next 10 years we will be deciding on where to retire and will hopefully be sitting somewhere looking at each other and say....20 years ago today was our last day of pastoring, now let's go to church and worship with our church family. Hmmm....I wonder where that will be?
